Fry, whose been living in the Planet Express offices, is a total slob and consequently kicked out of his office/living space. Fry and Bender get an apartment together and discover the nuts and bolts of cohabitation. The two become the ultimate "odd couple," until Bender gets kicked out of the building for creating television interference with his antenna.
When Fry doesn't come to Bender's rescue, a dejected Bender goes on a drinking binge and cuts off his antenna! Thankfully, the wisdom of the robot soap opera "All My Circuits" helps them mend their ways...and mend Bender's head.
